CRANS MONTANA, Switzerland, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Richie Ramsey of Scotland shot a 6-under 64 in soggy, foggy conditions Saturday to take the third-round lead at the European Masters in Switzerland.

Ramsey held a one-stroke lead over Danny Willett and Paul Lawrie, who won last week's Johnny Walker Championship and shot 67 Saturday.

Ramsey slogged his way to a one-stroke lead with a bogey-free round despite another lengthy delay due to fog and overnight rain that saturated the course.

The conditions caused tournament officials to change the sixth hole to a par three and reduce par for the entire course to a 70.

Lawrie started out on a high note with an eagle on the first hole but cooled off on the back nine with a double-bogey on the par-5 14th hole. Willett also carded an eagle on No. 1.

Second-round leader Julien Quesne shot 70 Saturday and slipped to fourth place at 9-under 203.
